Some says that there is always a thousand convincing excuses to quit but very few rational reasons to keep moving on.Hebrews 1039 But we're not quitters who lose out. Oh, no! We'll stay with it and survive, trusting all the way. (MSG)39 But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved. (NIV)
When one is at the end of her rope, should she let go or wait for someone else to come to her rescue?
What would one do if he fought a great battle, but suddenly there was an unprecedented event that turn the situation upside down? In a blink of an eye, he was under attack, wounded, and dying. Should he quit hoping for medics and kill himself? Or should he believe that his troop is winning and he is going to be brought back to the camp safe and sound?
I really love this verse on Psalm 85, NIV.
I love how comforting the promise is even though it is built on the bitter truth that men need to be saved, including those who fear God.
At the end of our ropes, at the end of our strength and hope, and at the moment where we are about to quit, Christ will show up and save our day. I believe in that, do you?
